After driving all day from Denver we wanted a quite stop for one night.The owners are very cordial and have a great casual fine dinning restaurant. Bacon wrapped scallops were delicious! The room was huge and very comfortable. We will be back again!!

Neat oversized room. High ceilings and nicely appointed. Cool big windows overlooking the downtown area. Best part are the two restaurants that are part of the hotel.
